Every year, the world marks the important role of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in our everday lives by organising educational events aimed at raising awareness of this little-known discipline. In South Sudan, WFP used the celebration at the end of November to encourage girls to learn more about geography but also, more generally, to stay in school and pursue their studies.
